404 page redirecting using .htaccess

Using .htaccess to redirect user to 404 page when ever an invalid url is enter.

To do this is very simple Follow the steps below.

  • On the file manager open Public_html folder.
  • locate .htaccess file and open it for editing


  • add this code to the htaccess file code (add at the bottom of the code)

  • 
    ErrorDocument 404 /404.php
    
    
    Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

    The code should look like this

    
    # HTID:15003771: DO NOT REMOVE OR MODIFY THIS LINE AND THE LINES BELOW
    php_value display_errors 1
    # DO NOT REMOVE OR MODIFY THIS LINE AND THE LINES ABOVE HTID:15003771:
    ErrorDocument 404 /404.php
    
    
    Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

    Note: to add redirect to 404 page on each folder, you have to add .htaccess to each folder.
